[hobbit] hosts still disappear

Correct, beta-5, plus the patch.
Okay, hobbitd isn't responding at all. hobbitd.chk hasn't been updated
since yesterday, and the hobbitlog command doesn't return anything.
Strangely, no pid file was located in /var/log/hobbit. However, a ps
grepping for hobbit showed this:
bbuser 32296 32295 0 Jan18 ? 00:00:00 hobbitd
I used gdb and attached to that pid, resulting in:
(gdb) attach 32296
Attaching to process 32296

This is with the beta-5 version PLUS the patch I posted yesterday ?
First, check if the hobbit daemon is still responding at all. You
can see if the ~server/tmp/hobbitd.chk file is being updated - it
should refresh every 10 minutes. You can also try this: If
~/server/bin/bb 127.0.0.1 "hobbitdlog some,server,name.conn"
responds with a status log, then it is responding. If not, proceed:
Next, I want to figure out what the hobbitd proces is doing. You'll
need the gdb (GNU debugger) for that. Login as the hobbit user, Find
the process ID of hobbitd - it's recorded in
/var/log/hobbit/hobbitd.pid, or use "ps" - then:
gdb> attach <hobbitd-processid>
Let me know what this shows.
